Первая страницаКрушение самолета Ан-12 в Южном Судане

Южный Судан/ Джуба
В Южном Судане разбился самолет Ан-12. Он упал рядом с международным аэропортом Джубы, столицы Южного Судана - в 800 метрах от взлетной полосы. Как стало известно, самолет был перегружен почти в два раза. Перегрузка рассматривается в качестве основной версии авиакатастрофы. Самолет перед крушением летел к месторождениям нефти на реке Верхний Нил. Борт Ан-12 упал на небольшой островок, на котором проживает крестьянская община. Под самолетом оказались местные рыбаки, они погибли на месте. Камеры наружного наблюдения аэропорта в Джубе зафиксировали падение самолета. Кадры показал один из местных южносуданских телеканалов. На видеозаписи видно, как самолет взлетел и затем мгновенно упал, на огромной скорости ударившись о землю. После этого раздался взрыв и самолет охватило огнем.
Всего при крушении погиб 41 человек, в том числе шесть членов экипажа - штурман из РФ и пятеро граждан Армении, а также жители деревни, на которую упал самолет. Двое выжили.
Власти Южного Судана объявили, что катастрофу потерпел Ан-12, принадлежавший местной транспортной компании Allied Services Limited. Она базируется в Джубе и специализируется на грузовых перевозках. Катастрофу потерпел борт Ан-12БК с регистрационным номером EY-406 и заводским номером 01347704. Этот самолет был изготовлен на Ташкентском авиационном производственном объединении им. В.П. Чкалова в Узбекской ССР (ныне - Ташкентский механический завод, Узбекистан) и эксплуатировался с 1971 года - более 44 лет. До 1993 года самолет был в составе Магаданского управления гражданской авиации (СССР, затем РФ), затем находился в собственности авиакомпании "Магадан Авиа Лизинг", в 1996 году был продан зарегистрированной в Сан-Томе и Принсипи авиакомпании British Gulf International, в 2007-2014 годах находился в парке армянских перевозчиков South Airlines и Taron Avia, в 2014 году был передан таджикистанской компании Asia Airways, а затем поступил в парк Allied Services Limited. По состоянию на осень 2015 года, в авиапарке этой южносуданской компании имелось три самолета

типа Ан-12. Два других имеют регистрационные номера EY-402 (модификация Ан-12Б) и EY-409 (Ан-12БП).

No survivors in Ohio plane crash; 9 dead10.11.2015
USA/ OH/ Akron

NTSB: On November 10, 2015, about 14:53 (EST), Execuflight flight 1526, a British Aerospace HS 125-700A (Hawker 700A), N237WR, departed controlled flight while on a nonprecision localizer approach to runway 25 at Akron Fulton International Airport (AKR) and impacted a four-unit apartment building in Akron, Ohio. The captain, first officer, and seven passengers died; no one on the ground was injured. The airplane was destroyed by impact forces and postcrash fire. The airplane was registered to Rais Group International NC LLC and operated by Execuflight under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 135 as an on-demand charter flight. Instrument meteorological conditions (IMC) prevailed, and an instrument flight rules (IFR) flight plan was filed. The flight departed from Dayton-Wright Brothers Airport (MGY), Dayton, Ohio, about 1413 and was destined for AKR.
The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:
The flight crew's mismanagement of the approach and multiple deviations from company standard operating procedures, which placed the airplane in an unsafe situation and led to an unstabilized approach, a descent below minimum descent altitude without visual contact with the runway environment, and an aerodynamic stall. Contributing to the accident were Execuflight's casual attitude toward compliance with standards; its inadequate hiring, training, and operational oversight of the flight crew; the company's lack of a formal safety program; and the Federal Aviation Administration's insufficient oversight of the company's training program and flight operations.


Первая страницаПри крушении самолета в американском городе Акрон погибли 9 человек



США/ штат Огайо/ Акрон


В американском городе Акрон, штат Огайо, потерпел крушение самолет British Aerospace BAe-125-700A (N237WR).

Все девять человек, находившиеся на борту, погибли.

Инцидент произошел неподалеку от международного аэропорта AKR около 15.00 по местному времени (23.00 мск). Самолет, падая, сорвал электрические провода, прошел насквозь через жилой дом и столкнулся с землей. Здание загорелось. Без света остались около полутора тысяч человек. По данным полиции, никто из жителей не пострадал. Сначала очевидцы услышали звук низко летящего самолета, затем был удар, столб черного дыма и пламя.

Расследование установило, что катастрофа произошла из-за ошибки экипажа.

САЩ/ Охайо/ Акрон


Малък пътнически самолет - бизнес клас, BAe-125-700A (N237WR) на Rais Group International изпълняващ полет EFT1526 на авиокомпанията Execuflight е паднал върху къща в щата Охайо, САЩ, при подхода си за кацане на международното летище Акрон- Фултън (AKR). На борда е имало 9 души. Няма оцелели от тях. Няма пострадали на земята.

Разследването установява, че катастрофата е причинена от грешка в пилотирането на екипажа, но заключава, че за това е допринесла и неадекватната политика на Execuflight по наемане, подготовка и оперативен контрол на действията на екипажа, за липса в авиокомпанията на програма по безопасността на полетите. Националното бюро по безопасността в транспорта (NTSB) критикува и Федералната авиационна администрация (FAA), че не е осъществявала достатъчен контрол върху работата на авиокампанията по безопасността.

Pilot Philip Garvey, 56, his wife Ann, 55, and children Emily, 23, and Daniel, 20, who were onboard the plane, were killed. The AAIB accident report was published on 10-11-2016, and the following is the summary from that report: "The aircraft was approaching Dunkeswell Airfield, Devon after an uneventful flight from Fairoaks, Surrey. The weather at Dunkeswell was overcast, with rain. The pilot held an IMC1 rating but there is no published instrument approach procedure at Dunkeswell. As the aircraft turned onto the final approach, it commenced a descent on what appeared to be a normal approach path but then climbed rapidly, probably entering cloud. The aircraft then seems to have stalled, turned left and descended to “just below the clouds”, before it climbed steeply again and “disappeared into cloud”. Shortly after, the aircraft was observed descending out of the cloud in a steep nose-down attitude, in what appears to have been a spin, before striking the ground. All four occupants were fatally injured. The investigation was unable to determine why the aircraft made the initial rapid climb but there was some evidence to suggest that the pilot may have manually overridden the autopilot, during the initial descent, without realising it was still engaged. This would have caused an out-of-trim condition that could have contributed to the aircraft pitching up rapidly. Evaluation flights showed that the pitch attitude achieved during this manoeuvre would have been disorientating for the pilot and may explain why control was not regained."

После авиакатастрофы в Игарке произошла еще одна катастрофа — государства



Россия/ Краснярский край/ Игарка


Экипаж вертолета Ми-8Т (RA-25361) выполнял транспортно-связной полет по маршруту Игарка - НПС-2 (нефтеперекачивающая станция нефтепровода Ванкор - Пурпе) - Красноселькуп - Игарка с целью доставки вахты. На борту находилось 22 пассажира, 3 члена экипажа и груз (личные вещи) весом 250 кг.
Взлет в а/п Игарка произведен в 10:57 местного времени. Вскоре после взлета вертолет потерпел катастрофу на льду реки Енисей в 2100 м от КТА аэропорта.
Вертолет полностью разрушен, пожара не было. 7 пассажиров и 3 члена экипажа погибли, остальные пассажиры получили ранения. Двое пострадавших скончались в больнице через трое и четверо суток после происшествия. Место АП расположено на удалении 1250 м от правого берега и в 1650 м от левого берега реки Енисей.
Полет проходил над заснеженной безориентирной местностью при следующих фактических метеоусловиях: ветер 140° 5 м/с, видимость 6000 м, облачность 7 октанов, кучево-дождевая высотой 660 м, ливневый снег, температура воздуха +15°С, давление 748 мм рт.ст.

Особая ситуация была идентифицирована экипажем как отказ автопилота в канале крена (согласно расшифровке записи МС-61). Вертолет перешел в снижение. Правый крен к моменту прекращения записи составлял около 50°. Столкновение с ледовой поверхностью произошло со значительной поступательной скоростью. Разрушаясь, вертолет продвинулся на расстояние около 100 м и остановился с креном на правый борт.
